I'm sure many of you remember the poster named Steeldco. I just was acquainted with him last year when I became a member and we had similar interests regarding sports betting. I had some PM conversations with him and we shared some info via email. I noticed he hadn't posted NBA this season and at one point I shot him an email inquiring if he was at a different forum or just not posting anymore? Hadn't heard back for months until a few days ago. The email I received was from a family member letting me know that he had passed away back in August 2017. I just thought I would post to let everyone know that may have known him. I'm sure Steel is upstairs now still working on some systems!


RIP STEEL

I had no idea he was ill. We PMd a few times after he signed off, and he just said he was busy with other things, and taking care of them were his priorities.(the same thing he said publicly).

Damn. I had hoped he would return. I really enjoyed his participation here.

RIP, indeed, steel.

He was always friendly, I don't know that anyone ever had anything bad to say about him.


I do I have a question: Is it normal for friends and family to answer emails letting others know of their passing?

I find that a bit odd, however, I wouldn't really know. Fortunately for me, I have had very little experience with people I know passing away. My grandparents, and perhaps a few people I had been friends with in the past but I didn't know them that well. Of course, recently there was our friend and partner perdition and it's still hard to believe.

If it was a heart attack, he may have not known either.

I think it's a new normal. People don't send snail mail any more. Their address books are online, rather than in a desk drawer. So I think.it was pretty considerate of the family to take that on.

I would have to think steel would.have appreciated and/or approved, too. Otherwise, how did they get the password to find his friends?

I had quite a bit if conversation with him offline. I am not doubting the OP and I hope he was not lied to, well I guess I hope he was. Steel did have some health problems prior to passing. He left the forum because he was suspended for 3 days and thought it was BS.

I would guess that my wife would do the same in that scenario. I would probably also look at her email and respond if she passed.

A lot of people are driven away from this site by the moderation. I was suspended for saying, "as the bell tolls" before. Now look at what has transpired since. This is really not the thread to talk about this though.

I did not know SteeldCo. Everyone is going to meet their maker one day. It is always a reminder to enjoy each and every moment that you are blessed with. Life is short.
